I think I know how to at least get the country out of debt and we can do it quickly. Think of the several Obama appointees who had to drop out of contention for not paying their taxes (and the Treasury Secretary had the same problem but he was special I guess and did not have to step down). So, out of that small sample of appointees, there was a surprisingly high percentage with tax issues. That percentage probably applies to society in general. Therefore, we do not have to tax the rich, we need to audit them. Just make the rich pay what they are supposed to pay! Former democratic senator Tom Daschle failed to pay $128,000 in taxes for a 3-year period. That's just one person. Think of all the Daschle's that must be out there.
